Draft Kings joins a crowded New Jersey online casino market with the rollout of the first phase of their own casino.

You can’t currently play on the browser or Draft Kings' i OS Apple app, although they're likely to offer the game through both platforms in the future.

Draft Kings is the unquestioned winner in sportsbook total revenue in New Jersey.
In October, they took in $5.09 million — this includes a small amount of revenue from Bet Stars NJ, which also operates under the Resorts AC license, according to the New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement.
The next closest online sportsbook was their biggest fantasy sports rival, Fan Duel, which took in $2.43 million. In jumping into the New Jersey online casino market, Draft Kings is attempting to cash in on an even larger revenue pool.
